Recreate Safely and Responsibly this Memorial Day Weekend: California State Parks Offers Safety TipsThursday, May 23, 2019 | View PDF
Memorial Day weekend kicks off California’s busiest season for outdoor recreation. California State Parks encourages outdoor enthusiasts to recreate safely and responsibly this summer season. It is important for visitors to plan ahead and learn about the parks that they are visiting in order to minimize any accidents. Whether you plan on biking, hiking, surfing, horseback riding, diving, swimming, recreating on a boat or off-highway vehicle (OHV), or simply enjoying time with friends and family in the outdoors, learning about the park before your visit is crucial. This is especially important this year, due to the large amounts of snow and rain California has received. Rivers are currently running dangerously cold and fast—even experienced swimmers are advised not to go into rivers.
